Exploring Evolution

Explore the evolution of life and learn all about Earth’s organisms, from rapidly evolving viruses to whales that walked. Consider seven interpretive areas focusing on cutting-edge scientific research illustrating how the evolutionary principles of variation, inheritance, selection and time are at work in different organisms. How does one fruit fly turn into 800? How can environmental changes and differing food supply cause finches’ bills to change size and shape? Spearheaded by The University of Nebraska State Museum and funded by the National Science Foundation, this exhibit was created by the Sam Noble Museum as part of a consortium of six museums across the country.
